I rubbed in 2 thick layers at room temperature, like super thick, then heated with a blow dryer to melt as much as possible into the nap. Then while it was still warm I rubbed into the seams and stuff then let them cool. I did the other pair. I repeated. Then wore them a few days, did another layer. I've done it about 3 or 4 times now so probably like 4-6 layers.
I'm just going to keep stuffing them with beeswax until they have a more even color (you can't tell it's uneven from the pic, a bit splotchy in places) and then keep wearing them. When they get dirt or scuffed or indigo rub off it blends in to a nice dark, also the creases on the toe box are nice and dark and crinkly. they aren't bad, I think what really saves them though is the contrast stitching and laces because they obviously don't darken like the leather.
